'Teen Mom' Reality Wedding Special Sounds Like a Huge Mistake (VIDEO)

catelynn lowell tyler baltierra teen momAlthough the Teen Mom series is coming to a close, fans of the show know that it's only the beginning for fave lovebirds Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. The cute couple got engaged a while back but decided to postpone their nuptials until after high school graduation. We weren't sure when they would actually say "I do" ... until December, when 19-year-old Catelynn happily tweeted that the had set the date: July 15, 2013.

There's one teensy problem with this. It comes well after shooting will have wrapped on the series. No matter. If we know MTV -- the same MTV that is forcing another season of Jersey Shore down viewers' throats, complete with Snooki and her bun in the oven -- there's a HUGE possibility that they'll want to make sure they capitalize on Catelynn and Tyler's Big Day anyway. Noooo!

Some might argue that by the time they would actually get around to airing something like a Teen Mom Ties the Knot Special, fans might be over it. But nah. Catelynn and Tyler are such fan favorites, and given the trend of reality TV stars airing their knot-tying for the whole world to see, MTV might think it's a fab idea! They could easily resurrect their Teen Mom cams to document the couple's summer 2013 wedding. But that doesn't make it right.

Even though these two are now reality stars, they're entitled to the same respect and privacy any soon-to-be couple deserves. Pushing TV cameras in their faces on their wedding day would be exploitative and even slightly cruel.

After all, reality TV marriages seem to have a much lower chance of making it (hello Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, etc.). Even their most devoted Teen Mom viewers wouldn't want to see Catelynn and Tyler start married life off on the wrong foot, right? If fans really want what's best for their beloved couple, they'll implore MTV to keep cameras away. A few photos published after the fact in Us Weekly or People will serve fans just fine.

Here's a video of the couple opening up in their post-reunion interview ...

Do you think MTV should film and air Catelynn and Tyler's wedding?

ummm... they don't have to let them film the wedding. They would, in fact be wise not to, but they will bc we're all slaves to money

They are step siblings.

The thing is, we have to take into consideration who exactly we're discussing. They are a very solid pair,(perhaps more so than most couples far older than they are), and I don't think letting cameras in would harm them in the least really. They are strong, smart, and surprisingly well adjusted people. Plus, they are used to the cameras. I think if they are into the idea, then all will be well. I just hope they get a fabulous "bonus" for allowing it. Especially with them ending their reality t.v. lives, the money would help them with an even better beginning to their marriage. Out of pretty much anyone on reality t.v. I think they deserve all of that and more. I wish them a very happily ever after!

Oh, and Venison...from what I understand from watching them on the show, they began their relationship BEFORE their parents began dating. I actually believe this couple has a real shot at making it, and are truly meant to be. It wouldn't be right for them to suffer the loss of their love, because their parents decided to go down the road they have : )

you fail to mention that Catelynn has tweeted that she wants the wedding filmed though, so it really isn't an issue of privacy

I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't even make it to the wedding. Their body language in this video is a little worrisome for a couple so in love they want to commit to marriage. You could fit another person on that love seat between the two of them, Tyler is leaning away from Caitlin, and she repeatedly looks at him when speaking to gauge his facial reactions to what she says but he doesn't appear to look over at her at any point, even after she speaks. I used to watch Teen Mom when it first came out and these two seemed so much more in love and had more chemistry before. And it's not just about time spent together. My fiancee and I just celebrated 7 years together and even in candid photos you can see the tell tale signs of connection, even when we are not sitting or standing together. Just a thought!

They are still step siblings.
